Upper School

Our offerings at the Upper School include a Math club, Robotics team, Science Enrichment club and Excellence 2000 (E2K) program. All Upper School students can participate in the Science Enrichment club, which meets on a weekly basis and competes in the New Jersey Science Olympiad, Toshiba ExploraVision and other competitions during the year.
Additionally, the Middle School Math Olympiad Club meets weekly to practice for monthly contests and competes annually against other day schools. The Middle School STEM club explores the engineering design process, works collaboratively on problem-solving skills, and becomes familiar with exciting technology in the STEM lab.

The Robotics team, the CodeRunners, is an intense club focused on developing skills in robot hardware design and programming as well as 3D printing. The group enters approximately five to eight meets and competitions throughout the year, including the First Tech Challenge. The CodeRunners has qualified for the state tournament at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and also competes in the RoboCupJunior USA Competition building, designing and programming a robot that plays autonomous soccer.
A new Girls Who Code club is also offered at the Upper School. The group is learning JavaScript and is affiliated with the national Girls Who Code organization, which aims to inspire and educate young women with computing skills to pursue jobs in the field of computer science.

Various STEM electives are also available to Upper School students. Courses offered are: Computer Programming, Computer Aided Design and 3D Printing, Engineering Design Challenge, and Robotics.

Students with a strong interest in and aptitude for science, technology, engineering and mathematics can apply for the four-year Dr Lynne B Harrison STEM program. Students apply and are accepted into the program going into their 9th grade year.
